Monetize Your Web Traffic With These Action-ables
There are n number of entrepreneurs who have succeeded in building a large and valuable audience only to be disappointed by the relatively inadequate earnings they consequently generate. What went missing is monetization, the process of turning your traffic into income streams. If you run a website and want your business to be smarter, bigger and faster, here’s a list of things you need to know to get massive traffic on to your website!
First and foremost, work on the quality of your content. Then try out these strategies to see what works for you.
Ask people to pay for your content by implementing a few steps. Now, people need to see the value of what they are paying for. Also it’s important to make them feel that they are gaining something from it. The key is to provide high-value content that people want. You can create a subscription or a paywall. With each level of membership, try offering them more and more access to the content they are looking for.
Try creating ads on your websites and in your newsletters. If you plan to advertise on Facebook or through AdSense, create those ads too.
Auto Responder Emails
This works great both before and after a sale. Your emails should be able to answer questions that people may have, offer additional training, and promote other back-end products.
Indeed, the best way to reach out to people for sharing your campaign is through social media. Keep updating your posts on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. However, make sure that you alter your content to fit the different platforms.
By becoming an affiliate or sales representative for another brand’s products, you can earn a commission for each sale made. If you have just started monetizing your website, this option may be right for you.
Sell Ad Space
Unless your website has a lot of targeted traffic, it’s going to be very difficult for you to sell advertisement space. However if you do have a lot of traffic, this form of revenue can be extremely rewarding.
Have you ever thought of selling products on your websites? Whether you have an ebook, branded merchandise or a video course, just sell it.
Search Engine Optimization
Most importantly you would want people to find your site right? You may have the most wonderful brand, compelling reasons to sign up, but it’s of no use if your website isn’t seen even on the second page of Google search. This is where search engine optimization (SEO) comes into the picture. It helps you use the right keywords to stay on top of the search results.
You really need to be focused if you are running a website and monetize your online efforts. Entrepreneurship is tough but with a right set of things to do; you will find your blue print to success.
